Podcast Crossword

June 15th to July 31st

Have you been listening to our podcast? Maybe you didn't even know that we had a podcast. Either way, this word puzzle is for anyone to complete. From June 15th to July 16th, (a whole month), everyone can download, print, or pick up a copy in our shop of a crossword themed around our podcasts. Once completed, hand it into one of our staff members to receive a FREE used book (providing that the answers are correct).

Watch or listen to the episodes for the answers and don't worry, they are not that hard. Good luck, detectives!

Anatomy of a Murder Mystery

Aug. 21st

2 pm to 3 pm

Join us on a wonderful Sunday afternoon as we dissect a murder mystery with authors Marcia Rosen and Claudia Riess. Make sure to jot down your detective notes as they led us through an examination of its components—from suspects and sleuths to dialogue and character development.

A discussion will take place on how to examine some of the problems they have each encountered in their writings and what remedies they use to overcome such obstacles. It is sure to be an interesting talk with some focus on how to maintain an exciting, inviting mystery series and an open discussion with readers, and writers, alike will follow.
